You are such an amazing man, I have to admit things haven’t been easy, but at the same time I don’t expect them to be. Even though you left us physically, I know you’re with us spiritually. I promise to do right by you and take care of our family. You are the strongest, bravest and protective man, father and husband I know. After putting my anger aside to think about things, I realized that God has a better plan for you and you’re not alone, you’re with Grand Daddy Samuel, Uncle Sammy, and your father, and I’m sure there’s much to discuss, I’m sure you have a lot to catch up on and they welcomed you home with open arms. I just want you to know that I love you more than life itself and I will always be your Ouis, xoxo. Not only did you teach me strength, but you always taught me how to be strong, you gave me the strength to not hold a grudge, life is clearly too short, everything happens for a reason, I accept that God wanted you to come home, only because you accepted it. It doesn’t mean I like it, but I’m willing to deal with it.
I’ll love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I’m living and even when I die, the best daddy you’ll be.
I would be lying if I said that I wasn't upset you had to go home. I feel like there was so much left for you to do with me, JaNae and Mommy. Daddy, your passing has surfaced a lot of things that help me understand why god wouldn't wait to have you. You bring Joy to anyone you have ever spoken to, like the person who sells you the lottery tickets, and to my friends that feel like family because of the joy and thoughtfulness you bring from your spirit. Your Poise is unlike any other being, you always, even after death, leave a memorable impression that always keeps people smiling with the thought. I couldn't find a word to grasp a better meaning than immaculate, if you know of a word, put that in front of Husband! I mean, if your two daughters aren't proof enough that you are, then all the years you demonstrated your strength, knowledge and love to create the bond between our family should suffice. I don't think I have ever met someone who didn't comment on how great it is or how lucky I am to have parents like you and Mommy. And last but not least Daddy, you are an example of what people aime to be in life. You are Noble, whenever anyone describes you Daddy, they say "John is a GREAT person". Everyone uses that term "GREAT". As a person, you have brought:
Joy in people's lives, you motivate other to follow your pOise, you're a successful Husband and father, and you are Noble. It is time for you to start the next chapter if your life; you have been a great father, Brother, Husband, Friend and MAN! Now it's time to be a GREAT angel. I love you Daddy and I support the next chapter of your life because I know you'd do the same.
